    Osmanthus delavayi has dark glossy leaves and a neat compact habit. The small white flowers are very fragrant, smothering the shrub in late spring. The flowers are tubes (½ inch) long and similarly wide at the mouth, held in axillary clusters. The plant is hardy and adaptable, preferring an open situation but not fussy about soil.
